by and through the Director, of Public Works, or 
the grantee, may terminate the franchise granted 
herein by giving written notice to that effect to 
the other at least one hundred and twenty (120)

this computation shall be prima facie correct.

remit to the Director of Finance the tax imposed

DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND 
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT 

Findings and Declarations of Necessity 

Sec. 20. (a) It is hereby found and determined: 
(1) that there exist tvithin the City of Baltimore slum, 
blighted, deteriorated, or deteriorating areas, which con- 
stitute a serious and growing menace, injurious and inimi- 
cal to the public health, safety, morals and general wel- 
fare of the residents of the City of Baltimore; (2) that 
the existence of such areas and the growth and spread 
thereof and the deterioration or threatened deterioration 
of other areas (i) contribute substantially and increasingly 
to the spread of disease and crime, and to losses by fire 
and accident; (ii) necessitate excessive and dispropor- 
tionate expenditures of public funds for the preservation 
of the public health and safety, for crime prevention, cor- 
rection, prosecution, and punishment, for the treatment of 
juvenile delinquency, for the maintenance of adequate 
police, fire, and accident protection, and for other public 
services and facilities; (Hi) constitute an economic and 
social liability; (iv) substantially impair or arrest the 
sound growth of the community; (v) retard the provision 



ORDINANCES 371 

of decent, safe, and sanitary housing accommodations; 
(vi) aggravate traffic problems and substantially impair or 
arrest the elimination of traffic hazards and the improve- 
ment of traffic facilities; (vii) depreciate assessable 
values; (viii) cause an abnormal exodus of families from 
the city; and (ix) are detrimental to the health, the well- 
being and the dignity of many of the residents of the City 
of Baltimore; (3) that such areas cannot be dealt with 
effectively by the ordinary operations of private enter- 
prise tvithout the aids herein provided; (J^) that the re- 
habilitation or elimination, in whole or in part, of slum, 
blighted, deteriorated, and deteriorating areas and the 
prevention of the spread or development of blight in, and 
the deterioration of, areas tvhich are free of blight are 
public uses and purposes requiring the exercise of the 
governmental powers of the City of Baltimore in the public 
interest. 

(b) It is further found and declared that some slum 
or blighted or deteriorated areas, or portions thereof, may 
require comprehensive acquisition, clearance, and dis- 
position with or without prior development or redevelop- 
ment, since the prevailing conditions of decay may make 
impracticable the reclamation of the area by conservation 
or rehabilitation; that some such areas or portions thereof 
and some deteriorating areas or portions thereof may be 
susceptible of conservation or rehabilitation in such a man- 
ner that the conditions and evils hereinbefore enumerated 
may be eliminated, remedied, or prevented without com- 
prehensive acquisition and clearance; that other areas not 
yet deteriorated or deteriorating, or portions thereof, may 
be conserved so that the conditions and evils hereinbefore 
enumerated may be prevented from spreading thereto or 
arising therein; and that all such areas ivithin the bound- 
aries of the City of Baltimore may be benefited through 
the enforcement of applicable regulatory codes relating to 
buildings, housing, sanitation or safety, the rendering of 
services to community organizations or through a com- 
bination of other means provided in this ordinance. 

(c) It is further found and declared that the elimina- 
tion, correction, and prevention of the conditions and evils 
hereinbefore enumerated must be undertaken through the 
use of a comprehensive and integrated program; that this 



372 ORDINANCES Ord. No. 152 

program should involve whatever range of municipal pow- 
ers and resources is required to enable the City of Balti- 
more to act affirmatively in fulfilling its responsibilities to 
its citizens; that this program requires a suitable adminis- 
trative structure to undertake adequately a coordinated 
and purposefid attack on urban slums and blight and the 
prevention of new areas of slums and blight; and that a 
comprehensive program should be undertaken within the 
boundaries of the City of Baltimore. 

(d) It is further found and declared that the poivers 
conferred by this ordinance are for public uses and pur- 
poses for which public money may be expended and the 
power of eminent domain exercised and that the neces- 
sity in the public interest for the provisions herein en- 
acted is hereby declared and determined. 

(e) As used herein, a slum, blighted, or deteriorated 
area is an area in which a preponderance of the struc- 
tures €hnd OR the dwelling units therein is detrimental to the 
public health, safety, or general welfare by reason of age, 
dilapidation, depreciation, overcrowding, excessive land 
coverage, faulty arrangement, lack of ventilation or sani- 
tary facilities, failure to conform with the provisions of 
the ordinances or regulatory codes of the City of Balti- 
more relating to buildings, housing, or sanitation, neigh- 
borhood obsolescence or deterioration, inadequate open 
space, parking, or access to transportation; or in which 
there is a preponderance of defective or inadequate street 
layouts, or of faulty lot layouts in relation to size, adequacy, 
accessibility or usefulness, or of unsanitary or unsafe 
conditions, or of deteriorated or inadequate site improve- 
ments or community facilities, or of conditions ivhich en- 
danger life or property by fire or other cause or tvhich 
retard development of the area, or any combination of 
these factors; or in which the land is suitable for develop- 
ment but has not been developed to an appreciable extent 
because of obsolete platting, diversity of otvnership, de- 
terioration of structures or site improvements, a high rate 
of tax delinquency or mortgage foreclosures, or spoiling 
of the land as a result of excavation or usage, or any 
combination of these factors. 

(f) As used herein, a deteriorating area is an area, 
whether within or apart from a slum, blighted or deterio- 



ORDINANCES 373 

rated area, ivhich contains obsolete or substandard struc- 
tures, or inadequate community facilities or incompatible 
land uses, or any combination of these factors ivhich sub- 
stantially impair or arrest the sound growth of the area, 
retard the provision of necessary housing accommodations 
or constitute an economic or social liability or constitute 
a detriment to the public health, safety, morals, or general 
welfare, in its present condition and use.
